News in August 2011
Slightly mistimed pictures from Solskogen 2011 by tFt - Evoke pics coming soon!
Demodays 2011 are history and we had a very great time together with our visitors. We want to thank everybody that was there, contributed to the competitions, watched the demoshows; we would like to thank our partners and especially our location, the SchÃ¼tzi in Olten, which was simply awesome. For everything that's left from that much too short weekend, we have created the After the Party page - with photos, videos, reports, releases and more. Supply your content and we'll add it to the list. Thanks again, for Demodays 2011. We'll be back!
Some pictures from our favorite Swiss party by Saga.
Added some of my Evoke 2011 pictures. Have fun!
We finally gathered a small roundup of Evoke 2011: Links to Results, Photos and Reports we came across. A small note would be great in case we forgot something.
If you're lost on your way to Olten, just call our hotline at +41622127554 and we'll help you out. The hotline will be in action starting on Friday, Noon. To find you way to the party place, be sure to use your navigation gear or print some maps. All travel information is here.
See you this weekend at the Demodays, we're looking forward to make your weekend rock.
Have you seen our invitation demo? The soundtrack by Netpoet is quite an earworm and that's why we are introducing the Theme Remix Competition. The goal: Create a great music track out of the sample provided in the sample pack (or using your own samples). Read more about this on our competition page.
Some rather belated pics from Solskogen by T-101 and new ones from Evoke 2011 by Silverlance!
We are happy to announce that Demodays 2011 is the first official Scenepointsâ¢ certified party. Every visitor buying a three-day-ticket (full ticket) will be awarded with his first 10 Scenepointsâ¢ . You can use your Scenepointsâ¢ at our bistro and get your first reward! Exchange 10 Scenepointsâ¢ (once per person) for one piece of fine meat, sponsored by Echtzeit on occassion of the 20th edition of the Swiss demoparty series. We will have a huge bbq, so don't miss it!
Perhaps you have already seen that our entrance tickets in Euro are a bit more expensive than last year. While we are extremely sorry about the sucky conversion rate, we can't do much about it - except one thing: Showing our appreciation for visitors coming from far away we establish a long distance discount that applies for journey longer than 700km (as the crow flies). But that's not all yet, we also want to make it a bit more affordable for students to visit the Demodays. In consequence, we now have a students discount too. To apply for one of these discounts, please contact us in advance. We're so looking forward to seeing all of you!
A great set of pictures from Evoke 2011 by Saga!
At the Evoke 2011 party, we have released the official Demodays 2011 Invitation called "My Buenzli". The Demo features a great soundtrack to sing-along by Netpoet. The visuals were made by Psykon/Mercury and coded by Pro/Nuance. It's less than two weeks to Demodays 2011 - feel invited to visit our party! Download the executable from scene.org or view the HD video capture on YouTube.
Want to see more from Evoke? Your chance is at Platine Cologne 2011 festival, 15th to 19th of August. Each day from 19 to 23 oÂ´clock we will show a nice demo selection featuring the best releases from Evoke. The festival is all over Cologne Ehrenfeld. The location featuring Evoke is DQE - Design Quartier Ehrenfeld. See you there!Â
Thanks a lot to everyone (the other organizers, our partners, live acts, visitors and those who contribute in the compos) for making this one of the best Evoke editions in history: 2011 will be a great year to remember!
We will add more great stuff from Evoke 2011 within the next days.Â
Better late than never: We finally decided on the specs of our competition hardware. We'll have two PC systems available - and as always: If the specs don't fit you, you can bring your own hardware, too. See our competition hardware specifications.
As requested, we managed to bring an IRC channel for the Demodays online (thank you, Gilligan). Connect to IRCnet and join the crowd in the channel #demodays (for example using this webchat) to talk about the Demodays, organize rides and everything else related to our event.
Only one day left - and we can announce some more DJs from Cologne that will make your stay more enjoyable. On Friday, DNKR and Dipswitch from BassprÃ¤sidium Records will spin some dubby bass vibes, and during Saturday, Brian de la Cruz and Jens3n will play some minimal and house for you. And don't forget that there are also DJ Storno and glxblt to look forward to! See here for more info on Evoke's musical programme. By the way, some copies of the new BassprÃ¤sidium 12" compilation (featuring dipswitch & DNKR) will be there to win in the music compos - so go and finish your tunes!
We are partnering with the Jena/Germany based filmfestival cellu l'art. TheÂ cellu l'artÂ Short Film Festival is heading towards its 12th edition this year. From April 12th to 17th they are going to present short films in the international competition. This year they will also accept demos.
When you submit your demo or intro to the Evoke competitions you will have the choice to automatically submit your contribution to theÂ cellu l'artÂ festival. All you need to do is to tick a checkbox.
Louie / TBLÂ presents a detailed overview of the new lighting system implemented in DICEs Frostbite 2 engine and how it enables us to stretch the boundaries of lighting in BATTLEFIELD 3 with its highly dynamic, varied and destructible environments. Louie will discussÂ the technical implementation of the art direction in BATTLEFIELD 3, the workflows we created for it as well as how all the individual lighting components fit together: deferred rendering, HDR, dynamic radiosity and particle lighting.
Join the seminar on Evoke and learn something while waiting for the compos to start!
No demoparty without proper live acts: Demodays presents Ultrasyd (Friday evening) and Restless Leg Syndrome (Saturday), live on stage with pumping music for you to listen, enjoy and dance.
Ultrasyd, a retro-gaming lover and demoscene enthusiast since early 00s, started to compose chiptunes accidentally in 2009 when he decided to get himself a collection of old computers and video-game systems for the sake of nostalgia. Since then, he has been eating chip for breakfast, and now delivers a mix of entertaining beats, energetic basses and sweet melodies. He has a particular affection for the flavour of computers such as Amstrad CPC, Atari ST and C64, but doesnât mind playing the Game Boy or composing electronic music with modern sequencers from time to time. Ultrasyd's gonna shake you on Friday, following the opening speech.
The guys from Restless Leg Syndrome are hardcore demoscene passivists and love to get active at the Demodays. The combo consists of Atombrot (who has previously played at Buenzli), Ox1d and Satelite Jack. For the Demodays gig, they might even go ahead and do psy remixes of famous demo soundtrack. They'll make you move on Saturday, between Demo-Night Part II and III.
We are glad to announce that our friends from DG-i are sponsoring this years Evoke. They not only support Evoke finacially but also understand what makes Evoke so special. That is why they decided to enhance on of Evoke's features: the BBQ. There will be free sausages for everyone at the DG-i BBQ.Â
Thank you very much DG-i.
If you are younger than 18 and consider to visit Evoke, then please note that we highly appreciate that, but because of legal issues, we can not let you into the party place without a declaration of consent filled out by your parents. Please get in touch with us and we'll provide you with the necessary info.
Pixels are invading the Demodays! Straight from Genoz/Vantage's secret labs, the PixelInvaders live installation will be present at the Demodays for you to play, watch and enjoy. Here's what the creator writes about his project: The Â«PixelInvadersÂ» LED system consists of 3D RGB LED panels, which playback real-time generated video animations or simple color change. Multiple PixelInvaders panel can be connected with each other to form a panel of any size. The panels are based on the latest LED technology - besides low heat dissipation and long life a panel may illuminate an entire room - and consume less energy than a standard light bulb! Read more about this at http://www.pixelinvaders.ch.
At Demodays, we gonna have a two-panel installation running all three days. This and other Demodays features are found on our Features Page.
